🙂 I’m glad I saw this, it puts things into perspective. Yesterday, I found out a couple I know (but am not close to) got engaged, and my first reaction was a pang of jealousy! Then I was happy for them and made small talk about the upcoming wedding. Then I just felt terrible. Why am I like this? How did I let it get to the point where I compare my relationship to someone elses? Why does it make me feel like he loves me less just because other people get engaged faster?

 

I have a boyfriend that I love. We live together, and beyond the talk he has made gestures that imply he wants to spend his life with me. We have a GREAT relationship, and I need to focus less on wanting him to marry me and focus more on being a better partner and showing him I’m patient. Marrying me is something I want him to do… but I know relationships are better if both people are asking what THEY can do for their partner rather than what their partner can do for them. I should concentrate now on further proving to him that I have the patience, love, affection, and perseverence to embark on a life-long relationship, and the rest will follow naturally in time (I hope).

@memo:  You are so right this is totally the attitude to have! I was actually thinking the other day that it wasn’t that long ago that I was pining away for a relationship as great as the one I have now!

@memo:  LOL. I should probably respond like that, but I’m a sarcasm monger. My usual response is “I know” with a cocked head and heavy eyelash batting.
